Prince of Persia Film, First Footage !

Prince of Persia Film, First Footage !

First extensive look at the Prince of Persia movie has come via ABC, in a feature that interviews PoP producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The footage, which bears the text ‘this film is not yet rated’, could be the snippets of an unfinished trailer; it appears to be edited in a fashion that matches a trailer. We get to see Jake Gyllenhaal training to become the Prince, Ben Kingsley, numerous shots of Jake battling topless, the expansive Moroccan set and Gemma Arterton as Tamina.

It promises to be a “Great adventure and wonderful action” says producer Jerry Bruckheimer:

Abarmard interesting you mention Italian films

by Darius Kadivar on

Cause there is currently a retrospective of Italian Film history at an exhibit in Paris which was inaugurated by Claudia Cardinal: Diva Italia at the Le Bon Marché Art Gallery.

Yes Italian films are VERY Popular here and they are strongly present every year at Cannes. I would not compare them to Bollywood Films since they are less commercial and more appealing to the intelligentsia. Actually Iranian films can be compared to the Italian Neo Realism films in style and content.

In recent years German and British films are also gaining in popularity which they had lost in recent years due to international competition.

and yes, i unfortunately read ALL the comments.  but it's cool.  no worries.  i very much appreciate JJ deleting them.  the whole thing just completely disrespected DK's blog and i'm sorry for that.

i didn't know that about bobby sands street in tehran.  kudos to iran for telling the brits to stick it.  (i decided to paraphrase that to my own satisfaction.  :-)

peace out

Thanks DK

What I understand from your explanation is that only popular/expensive movies are distributed simultaneously in the US and France (Maybe Europe), correct?

I always enjoyed Italian movies, how do French feel about the Italian movies? Are the Italian movies comparable to Ballywood of Europe, and very popular?

Abarmard it depends

by Darius Kadivar on

In France and Europe we usually see the films either earlier or later than the US release depending on the distributors but also depending on the Film Festivals. For instance when an American film like Indiana Jones opens the Cannes Film Festival or is present at Cannes before its Official US Release we get to see it earlier here. But most Major Blockbusters are released Worldwide on the same day. Like Star Trek, James Bond or The Da Vinci Code.

In addition Paris is really cool because you get to see films from all over the world and I get to see many Iranian films here which I would not have been able to see otherwise unless I get a poor DVD copy.  

But sometimes we do have surprises and have to wait till ends year to see some widely talked about film in the US or England. Like for instance some films present at the Oscars like Benjamin Button or The Reader.

So it really depends on the distribution policy regarding the film but also depending on when the DVD Zones are available. Usually a DVD is out 6 months after the films release and so they try to make sure the other countries get to see the film before the DVD release.

DK, sorry about hijacking

DK, sorry about hijacking your blog but I can't let this one go.

AF,

Did you have the fish and chips from my menu or is it from my Rashti mahi recipe that I responded to from the Nowruz blog way back when?  Either way the secret is Guinness in the batter:)

BTW:  I read that loon's racist remarks before the moderator intercepted.  What a tool.  I hope you didn't read his anti-Irish crap.  I'd like to say that my son is half Celt and I know that's not Gaelic but that was offensive to my sweet boy.  Iranians, especially Iranians living in Iran are very sympathetic towards the Irish.  Remember when Iran played Ireland for the world cup qualifiers and the respect that was shown or better yet how 'bout this:

Bobby Sands the Irish activist made such an impact that the IRI did this: 

In Tehran, Iran President Bani-Sadr sent a message of condolence to the Sands family.[43] After the 1979 Iranian revolution the government renamed Winston Churchill Boulevard to Bobby Sands Street. The street is alongside the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Tehran and has the automobile access to the embassy. Hooman Majd, a writer, says that as of 2008 his name is misspelled as Baby Sandez and Boby Sendz on some maps and signs. A street in the Elahieh district is also named after Sands.[44] An official blue and white street sign was affixed to the rear wall of the British embassy compound saying (in Persian) "Bobby Sands Street" with three words of explanation "militant Irish guerrilla".[43][45] The official Pars news agency called Bobby Sands' death "heroic".[43] There have recently been claims that the British foreign secretary has pressured Iranian authorities to change the name of Bobby Sands Street but this is denied,[46][47][48] the embassy states that it is located on "Ferdowsi Avenue".[  Ala Wiki 

PPS:  Gyllenhaal as a topless Prince of Persia.  Akh Joon.
